About the Event

By the end of August, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) will have apprehended nearly 1 million people over the past year at the Southwest border. Mass immigration is nothing new to the U.S., but today it is in the spotlight more than ever. 

With a backlog of over 800,000 immigration cases, finding a solution to both the underlying causes and impact on the legal system feels urgent. How can the U.S. – with the Statue of Liberty’s beacon shining brightly over Elis Island –maintain its own border security while honoring its history as a safe haven for immigration? 

Join us in conversation with Matthew Hines and Killa Marti, practicing immigration attorneys, as they discuss the legal aspect of the immigration crisis. Past and present legal framework that has shaped the current crisis will be closely examined to explain the underlying causes and possible solutions for the future. 

Members Only. Complimentary for Members.
